Abstract

A shelf divider system comprising a divider wall mountable in a channel member secured to the front of a shelf. A spring-urged pusher member is slidably mounted on a track having a pair of rails integral with the divider shaft. In one embodiment, the operationally mounted divider wall is vertically oriented and the pusher member extends horizontally therefrom so that displayed merchandise resets directly on the shelf surface but is automatically urged forwardly by the retracted pusher member. In another embodiment, the track provides the supporting surface for displayed merchandise and a vertical divider wall is integrally formed with the track.

Description

TECHNICAL FIELD

This invention relates to merchandise display shelf divider systems and, more particularly, to space dividers for existing display shelves having self-contained means for automatically feeding the merchandise forwardly.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Display shelf divider systems are well known and widely employed, particularly in self-service stores, and the like. A representative example of a shelf divider system is shown and described in U.S. Pat. No. 4,712,694, that system comprising an elongated channel that is adhesively secured to the top surface of a shelf. Rearwardly extending divider elements are snap-fittable in the channel and are laterally adjustable to obtain the desired spacing and individual merchandise display areas. The patented system had no means for moving or feeding the merchandise.

For a number of important merchandising considerations, it is desirable that displayed merchandise be constantly conveyed forwardly so that the customer, or store clerk, is induced to remove the forwardmost article for purchase or sale. For example, if the goods are perishable or subject to becoming stale (e.g., cigarettes, fruit juices, dairy products, etc.), it is important that the articles be removed on a first-in-first-out basis to maintain freshness. Also, if the goods are removed in random or haphazard fashion, the result is unsightly disorder of the display. Furthermore, such shelf disorder makes more difficult routine operations like inventory control and merchandise re-stocking.

There thus exists a need for a shelf divider system having means for constantly moving the displayed merchandise forwardly for ready access thereof. Such a system should be simple to install and use, relatively inexpensive and completely flexible for use with merchandise of various sizes.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention provides a simple to install and use stock shelf divider system having self-contained means for automatically moving the displayed merchandise forwardly,. The conveying means comprises a self-contained spring-urged pusher which is effective on any existing shelf, including those that are horizontal.

Briefly, the invention comprises a divider member and a pusher member slidably mounted on a track. A wound spring is connected to the track at the front end thereof and the coiled portion of the spring is retained o the pusher member. The divider member and track are frictionally and slidably mountable in a suitable channel member connectable to a shelf surface by adhesives, or the like. When operationally positioned, the track extends rearwardly over the shelf and the pusher member may be easily retracted to bear against goods positioned between it and the front channel member.

In one embodiment of the invention, the track is integral and coextensive with the divider member so that the divider and track are vertically oriented over the shelf, the pusher projects horizontally, and the shelf surface supports the goods.

In a second embodiment, the track comprises part of a floor section to which is integrally attached a vertical divider wall. Thus, the operationally positioned track is horizontal, the pusher member projects vertically, and the goods are supported by the floor of the shelf divider.

The inventive system may be quickly installed without the need for tools and is virtually foolproof in operation.

Numerous other advantages and features of the present invention will become apparent from the following detailed description of the invention, from the claims, and from the accompanying drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

Referring to FIGS. 1 through 4 of the drawings, it will be seen that the reference numeral 10 indicates generally a preferred embodiment of the spring-urged shelf divider. A plurality of dividers 10 is shown in FIG. 1 in a typical operational arrangement on a shelf 12, the dividers being adjustably supported on the shelf by an elongated channel mounting member 14. Mounting member 14 is secured to the shelf 12 by any suitable means such as an adhesive mounting strip 16 (see FIG. 3). the mounting member 14 may be provided in any desired length to suit shelf conditions and preferably comprises an extrusion of suitable plastics having an attractively tapered front face 18 and a vertical rear wall 20 defining a resilient top-opening channel 22.

The divider 10 comprises an elongated track 25 having top and bottom rails 26 and 28, respectively. A spacer member 30 depends from the rear edge 32 of the track 25 and is adapted to operationally support the bottom rail 28 in raised relation to the shelf 12 to permit unobstructed movement of a pusher member on the track in the manner to be described. The track 25 comprises further a recessed outer wall 34 substantially coextensive with the rails 26 and 28. When operationally arranged as in FIG. 1, the walls 34 function as divider members to separate the shelf space into individual merchandise display areas.

A pusher member 35 is slidably mounted on the track 25, said pusher member comprising a front pusher face 36, generally triangular top and bottom walls 38,38, an end wall 40 and flanges 42,42 adapted to ride on the rails 26 and 28 (see FIG. 4). A pair of retaining walls 44,44 is integrally formed on the rear surface of the pusher face 36 and said walls cooperate with the end wall 40 to operationally retain the coil 46 of a spring 45. The opposite end 47 of the spring 45 is received through a slot 48 between the outer wall 34 and a front portion 50 of the track 25 where it is anchored to a post 52 integral on the front portion 50. It will thus be noted that the pusher member 35 may be withdrawn rearwardly against the urging of the spring 45 whereupon the played out portion of the spring lies in close proximity to the outer wall 34. Forward travel of the pusher member 35 is limited by a stop projection 54 formed on the rail 28.

Divider mounting means is provided on the track front portion 50, said mounting means comprising a depending tongue 56 adapted to be frictionally received and retained in the channel 22 of the mounting member 14 (see FIG. 3). The tongue 56 is capable of sliding movement within the mounting member so that a divider may be adjustably positioned as desired.

Operation of the shelf divider 10 should now be apparent. A plurality of operationally shelf-mounted dividers 10 are adjustably positioned to provide spacing suitable for accommodating the particular goods, such as, packages P of various brands of cigarettes. The pusher member 35 is withdrawn against the urging of the spring 45 and the packages P are placed upon the shelf 12 between the withdrawn pusher member and the rear wall 20 of the mounting member 14. As the front package in a column is removed, the remainder of the column is urged forwardly until exhausted.

Another embodiment of the invention is shown in FIGS. 5 through 9 of the drawings, wherein similar parts are identified with similar numerals with the suffix "a" added. Thus, spring-urged shelf dividers 10a are operationally and adjustably supported on a shelf 12a by an elongated channel mounting member 14a secured to the shelf by any suitable means such as an adhesive strip, or the like (not shown), said mounting member having a resilient top-opening channel 22a.

Divider 10a comprises a track 25a having horizontal side rails 26a and 28a and a recessed horizontal wall 34a. A pusher member 35a having a front pusher face 36a and a bottom wall 40a is slidably mounted on the rails 26a and 28a by means of the flanges 42a. Coil 46a of spring 45a is retained by retaining walls 44a and the opposite end 47a of the spring is anchored to a post 52a depending from a front portion 50a of the track 25a. Divider 10a comprises further an integral vertical divider wall 60 at one side thereof and a vertical front wall 62. When operationally arranged in abutting relationship as illustrated, the vertical divider walls 60 close the open side of the next adjacent divider 10a, except for the end divider (on the left as viewed in FIGS. 5 and 7), to provide self-contained merchandise display areas. Thus, when packages P are inserted, they rest upon the horizontal track 25a, but the spring-urged operation of the dividers 10a is otherwise the same as earlier described in dividers 10.

For purposes of closing off the open end of the left-most divider 10a, there is provided a vertical sidewall 64 having positioning feet 66 formed with a series of spaced positioning grooves 68 (see FIGS. 5-7). The positioning feet 66 are receivable in slots 69 formed in the recessed wall 34a, and the grooves 68 are adapted to receive and engage a ridge 70 depending from the track wall defining the slots 69, whereby the spacing of the sidewall 64 may be adjusted as desired to accommodate a particular product and that adjusted spacing operationally retained.

It should now be apparent that the invention provides an inexpensive and simple-to-use divider system for organizing and aiding in the dispensing of `goods on existing shelving. The spring-urged pusher means facilitates compact display of goods and first-in-first-out dispensing thereof.

It will be appreciated from the foregoing detailed description of the invention and illustrative embodiments thereof that numerous variations and modifications may be effected without departing from the true spirit and scope of the novel concept of the principles of the invention.
